This is an excellent site if you are prepared to be honest about what you eat and what exercise you take!
It's based on a food diary - thousands of foods listed plus you can enter details of you're own. The tools allow you to analyse your eating patterns and track your weight. It works out your fats/carbs/proteins ratio plus the % of other key nutrients. I realised I needed to cut down my fats and up my protein and that I need more calcium and iron.
It's allowed me to tackle the extra pounds that I carried (only just not overweight but problems with an arthritic knee)and then work out a diet plan that sustains me at my new lower weight. If I put on weight - as I have over Christmas - it will help me get back to where I need to be. I also use it to help a much more overwieght friend and she is doing wonderfully!
